We stayed here while visiting a niece who is studying at the University. The location is excellent for the University and the price is reasonable, especially with the free parking. On the plus side the staff were friendly, the rooms with bathrooms were spotless, had everything we needed and breakfast was good. The overall memory of our stay however was... More

Having booked a stay in venuebirmingham and upon reaching Edgbaston Park Road I had thought it would be easy to locate venuebirmingham. Not so! Driving up and down the road it is full of residential accommodation mainly for students all looking pretty much the same. Checking each "Birmingham University" sign as we drove by not one mentioned venuebirmingham. Asking around... More

You've just identified the single biggest worry we have - and the one that we can do very little about I am afraid! We are part of the University of Birmingham - and part of the Calthorpe Estate, and as such we have very strict restrictions on the signage we can place on Edgbaston Park road. I would love to...

Good stay here, convenient. Rooms quite basic, free parking which is a bonus. The food however is fantastic. Ate in the restaurant and opted for the fish & chips. They were the best fish and chips I have ever eaten ... and I've eaten a lot of fish & chips! Credit to the chef.

I always stay here when I visit Birmingham University. It is right next to the campus, is extremely reasonable in terms of price (£40 per night for a single room), has great breakfasts included in the price, and is very professionally run. OK, it is a bit like staying in student accommodation; the rooms are basic. But you have your... More

we stayed here to visit the Christmas market in December. We were checked in by Keri, who was lovely and very helpful. The room was basic but comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. We were checked out by Liam who was charming.

It is always wonderful when our guests mention staff that have given excellent service by name: it means I know who to mention to their managers as doing an excellent job! - many thanks for the kind words - I will make sure that Keri and Liam get the recognition they deserve. More

It is described as a hotel but it is a student block that is in dire need of refurbishment. The reception staff were delightful, helpful and I was encouraged despite the appearance of the place. But as soon as you leave reception, there is an overwhelming smell of detergent, long institutional corridors and tatty teak doors. The room was small... More

Hi: we are sorry to hear about your experience with other guests at the hotel and I want to let you know that the only repercussions from calling reception would have been for someone from University security to come over and have a word with the rowdy guests - and stay as long as necessary to make sure you felt...

I stayed at the hotel for one night in a standard twin room. I've never stayed in such a basic hotel room! There wasn't even any handwash! The room was also small and stuffy and the showee was tiny! It cost us 10 pounds for a taxi into the city and we had a really good night. Luckily, we didn't... More

We stayed here while visiting our son at Birmingham Uni. We have stayed before in the modern blocks of the hotel/conference centre and they have been a bit warm and uncomfortable. This time we managed to be out into the old house(Garth House) and appeared to be the only people in the building. For £60 for the night including breakfast... More
